AGENCY:

Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

This notice publishes the 2006 interim adjustments for the Pacific and Caribbean Nonforeign Area Cost-of-Living Allowance (COLA) areas. The Federal Government conducts COLA surveys in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands to set COLA rates. These surveys are conducted once every 3 years on a rotating basis. In between COLA surveys, the Government adjusts COLA rates for the areas not surveyed using the relative change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the COLA area compared with the Washington-Baltimore CPI. The Pacific and Caribbean COLA areas were not surveyed in 2006. Therefore, OPM is calculating and publishing interim adjustments for these COLA areas. This notice also publishes a revised listing of the 2005 estimated Washington, DC, area middle income annual consumer expenditure data.

DATES:

We will consider comments received on or before November 13, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Subpart B of part 591 of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, requires the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to set nonforeign area cost-of-living allowance (COLA) rates for U.S. Postal Service and white-collar Federal employees in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). Section 591.223(a) prescribes that we conduct these surveys on a rotating basis, once every 3 years. Section 591.224 requires we adjust the previous COLA survey price indexes for the areas not surveyed by using the relative change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the Start Printed Page 52170COLA area compared with the change in the Washington, DC, area CPI.

In 2006, we surveyed Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau, Alaska. We did not survey the Caribbean or Pacific COLA areas. Therefore, we are adjusting the previous Caribbean and Pacific survey price indexes using the relative change in CPIs. As required by § 591.225, we used the CPI, All Urban Consumers (CPI-U), as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for Honolulu and the Washington-Baltimore area and the Puerto Rico CPI as produced by the Puerto Rico Department of Work and Human Resources.

2004 Pacific Survey Results and Interim Adjustments

First, we computed the change in prices for the Honolulu area compared with the change in prices for the Washington-Baltimore area using the CPI-Us for each area. Table 1 shows this process.

Table 1.—Honolulu and Washington-Baltimore CPI-U Changes 2004 to 2006

Survey areaCPI-U
Honolulu 2004 CPI-U first half189.2
Honolulu 2006 CPI-U first half206.4
Honolulu change9.0909%
DC-Baltimore 2004 CPI-U first half118.3
DC-Baltimore 2006 CPI-U first half127.7
DC-Baltimore change7.9459%

Next, we multiplied the price indexes from the five 2004 Pacific surveys (Honolulu, Hawaii County, Kauai, Maui, and Guam) by the change in the Honolulu CPI-U and divided that by the change in the Washington-Baltimore CPI-U. The price index is the COLA survey index before the addition of the adjustment factor specified in § 591.227. The adjustment factor reflects differences in need, access to and availability of goods and services, and quality of life in the COLA area relative to the DC area and is a fixed amount. Therefore, it is not adjusted by the change in the CPI.

OPM published the 2004 Pacific survey report in the Federal Register on August 4, 2005, at 70 FR 44989. The report included the survey price indexes for each of the Pacific COLA areas. OPM revised these price indexes in a final rule published in the Federal Register on August 2, 2006, at 71 FR 43897.

Table 2 shows the interim adjustment process. For example, the 2004 Maui COLA survey adjusted index, as published in the Federal Register, is 131.50. The Maui adjustment factor is 7 points. Therefore, subtracting the adjustment factor shows 124.50 as the price index from the 2004 survey. We increased this price index by 9.0909% (i.e., multiplied by 1.090909), the change in the Honolulu CPI-U, and reduced it by 7.9459% (i.e., divided by 1.079459), the change in the Washington-Baltimore CPI-U, to give a new price index of 125.82. We then added the 7 point adjustment factor to the new price index, which yields a 2006 Maui Interim Adjustment COLA rate of 132.82.

2005 Caribbean Survey Results and Interim Adjustments

The process we used to compute the interim adjustments for the Caribbean areas (i.e., Puerto Rico and USVI) is identical to the one for the Pacific areas except that we used the Puerto Rico CPI as produced by the Puerto Rico Department of Work and Human Resources, as specified in § 591.225. Table 3 shows the relative change in the Puerto Rico CPI compared with the Washington-Baltimore CPI-U.

Table 3.—Puerto Rico and Washington-Baltimore CPI-U Changes 2005 to 2006

DC-Baltimore 2005 CPI-U first half122.8
DC-Baltimore 2006 CPI-U first half127.7
DC-Baltimore change3.9902%

We multiplied the Puerto Rico and USVI price indexes by the change in the Puerto Rico CPI and divided that by the change in the Washington-Baltimore CPI-U. OPM published price indexes for Puerto Rico and USVI in the 2005 Caribbean survey report at 71 FR 63179. As noted in section 4.2.3 of the report, we calculated the Puerto Rico survey index (103.32) after we re-priced water utilities based on a post-survey increase in water utility rates. The CPI for Puerto Rico already reflects this increase; therefore, we reverted to the pre-increase index level (103.06) to avoid duplication in the interim adjustment calculation. Table 4 shows the 2005 indexes, the interim adjustment process, and the final results.

Interim Adjustments Summarized

In a proposed rule published on September 6, 2007, at 72 FR 51200, OPM proposed to adjust COLA rates based on the interim CPI adjustments. In the Pacific, the results indicate that COLA rates in all of the areas except Hawaii County are currently set at the appropriate levels. In Hawaii County, the results show that the COLA rate should be increased to 18 percent. In the Caribbean, the results indicate that the COLA rate for the U.S. Virgin Islands is currently set at the appropriate level and the rate for Puerto Rico should be increased to 11 percent. As noted in the proposed rule, OPM plans an additional adjustment to the Puerto Rico COLA rate based on the impact of the new Puerto Rico sales tax.

Consumer Expenditure Data

Appendix 2 of the 2005 COLA survey report included a listing of estimated DC area middle income annual consumer expenditures. We are publishing a revised listing of the consumer expenditure data with this notice. The revised listing contains the data we used in the 2005 survey index calculations.
